|:36||sl||Ebay has released HeadGaze on GitHub, an open source computer vision system that uses Apple's ARKit to let you control an app by tilting your head. HeadGaze was developed by eBay’s computer vision team and guided by Muratcan Cicek, an eBay intern and PhD candidate who describes himself as having “extensive motor impairments.” Head position moves a cursor and if it stays in one place for a few seconds it activates a click. In addition to accessibility, Cicek says it could be used for hands-free scrolling such as when you have a recipe. The company is also investigating adding eye tracking as well.||https://venturebeat.com/2018/09/11/ebay-open-sources-headgaze-so-you-can-control-an-iphone-x-screen-with-head-movements/|

Locally installed software was chosen instead of the Web because of poor internet connectivity in some regions. Operators were required to provide a fingerprint or iris scan as well as checking GPS. Huffpost India reported that a software patch was widely circulated to bypass these security checks and sold on WhatsApp groups for around Rs 2500 (~US$35). Operators began using the patch to charge more than allowed to sign up users. Aadhaar has stopped the third party enrollments and only allows banks and government institutions like the postal service to enroll new users. The patch was examined by several security experts including Dan Wallach, Professor of Computer Science, and Electrical and Computer Engineering, at Rice University in Houston, Texas.||https://www.huffingtonpost.in/2018/09/11/uidai-s-aadhaar-software-hacked-id-database-compromised-experts-confirm_a_23522472/|

|:48||sl||A project designed to clean up 88,000 tons of plastic floating in what's being called the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" began on Sunday. The Ocean Cleanup Project started towing its "Ocean Cleanup System 001" from San Francisco to a trial site around 240 nautical miles (260 miles) offshore. The hope is that a combination of wind and waves will push System 001 into a U-shape to collect the plastic, and A 10-foot long skirt hanging below will collect pieces of plastic as small as a millimeter in size. Smaller boats will later scoop them up and take them to shore for recycling.After the trial, the boom will be towed another 900 nautical miles to begin the much larger cleanup of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Crews will stay at the patch for six months to continue monitoring, and hope for autonomous vehicles to do more long-term cleanup work.||https://www.engadget.com/2018/09/11/great-pacific-garbage-patch-cleanup-started/|

|Tom - since you mentioned the USPS mail scanning service on Good Day Internet, ..., I thought I'd email in to mention how much I love it. We recently moved, and I checked the box for "Informed Delivery" as they call the service on a whim. It's amazing to see the front of letters that are coming, as well as getting notified that packages are coming. Anyone in the US (as far as I can tell) can sign up without having to move at: https://informeddelivery.usps.com/|
